Harmony Day aims to encourage people to share in the spirit of community and this Saturday shoppers visiting Woolworths in River Street, Ballina, will find local Girl Guides offering a Harmony Sausage Sizzle.The guides will hand out Harmony Day ribbons and stickers and invite people to use a world atlas to plot the countries where their families originally came from. The completed map will provide a cultural diversity snapshot of the local area.
Next Wednesday, March 21, there will also be a multicultural picnic on the grass area at the back of the Lismore Library in Magellan Street from 12 noon - 2.30pm. Wear your national dress or something orange for Harmony Day, and bring a plate of food to share and a picnic rug.
